Love ugly fruit – the Chopping Disco is back in Berlin

choppingThis year we are supporting the “Schnippeldisko” (chopping disco) again, which is organised by Slow Food Youth.

On the 18th of January 2013 many helping hands will come together at Markthalle 9 in Berlin Kreuzberg to chop about a ton of vegetables for a protest soup that will warm the hearts and bellies of the thousands of “Wir haben es satt!” demonstration participants the following day. The demonstrators raise attention against the industrialisation of farming in front of the German Chancellory in Berlin on the 19th of January.

All vegetables used for the protest soup are from the region of Brandenburg and are usually rejected by buyers as they don´t fit into the German trade standard. They are either too big, too small or have an unusual shape, but there is literally nothing wrong with them and they are 100% ecological.

To make cutting of all those vegetables more fun and to create a real ´disco´ feeling we invited the DJs Decent and Fu, who will play the finest sounds for all helpers.
